Upgrading the Database is a serious topic and project that our customers undertake.
Understanding all of the upgrade resources that are available ensures our customer's success towards the strategy of Product Lifecycle Management. Premier Support for the terminal release of 9iR2 (220.127.116.11) expired in July 2007. The fee during the first year of Extended Support was waived. Extended Support is available until 2010. Contact your Support Renewals Representative for details and pricing.
Oracle Premier Support and the Customer Support Education team have extended their webcast sessions to now include the Database Upgrade Companion. The Database Upgrade Companion 2.0 is available on MetaLink for review, along with our extensive solution library in the Knowledge Browser under the Database Category: Installation and Upgrade & Migration topic headings.
The webcast training is available on MetaLink
